On 16th November, a group of ten staff from Suncorp Insurance spent most of the day helping out in the N4C native nursery.  Instead of answering phone calls from distressed motorists, they got to grips with seedlings and potting mix, seed pods, weeds, osmocote and pot washing brushes.

Riding bikes along the creek - sounds like fun, but there's a lot of vegetation there that is pretty important.  Our bushcarer at Heath Park noticed some damage to mangroves and shrubs at Heath Park due to people creating their own bike path.  Some local liaison was done and Council has been very supportive by providing signage to remind bike riders to keep off the vegetation that is right on the creek bank. Thanks!
